Eagles To Let Jason Peters Hit Free Agency
The Philadelphia Eagles are allowing Jason Peters to test free agency, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. When asked if he wanted the 38-year-old left tackle to return next season, much to the fan’s displeasure Doug Pederson responded with a confident “heck yeah.” The fear amongst the fanbase was that the organization has yet to learn to let go of sentimental players well beyond their prime. This doesn’t mean that Peters is 100% gone, but it does allow him to explore more lucrative options with other teams.
The #Eagles are expected to let Jason Peters hit the free agent market, sources say. After 11 years with the team, the nine-time Pro Bowl selection could be headed elsewhere, though the parties will remain in contact.

Jason Peters has been with the Eagles for the last 11 seasons, putting together a Hall of Fame career and helping the team win their first championship. He started 13 games for the club last season but the decline was evident. This should all but end the rumors that the Eagles aren’t confident in what they have in Andre Dillard. The 2019 first-round pick looks to be the starter moving forward.
